Fantastic trip, went with my sister, we shared the ride with some girls scout from UTAH :) had singing choir down the river, great lunch friendly staff. We had excitement as we almost tip the boat but all was well. No one was injured and we all had a great time. We are in our 60 and the girls were... More

The rapids were down when we went, but it was still exciting. Clayton did a great job navigating the rapids. This was our first time... More

I had the opportunity to check off one more thing on my bucket list last Thursday 8/11/16 while Whitewater rafting through the Red Canyon. I was impressed by our Guide Clayton's ability to navigate our raft through the rivers bends with skill and ease targeting the rapids. He not only was knowledgeable but his sense of humor was an added... More

My teenage grandsons and I had a terrific time on our 2 hour trip. We went the first week of August and the water was down about 3' which caused a decrease in how fast the rapids were going. Our trip wasn't quite as thrilling as we'd hoped for but it was still a lot of fun and we'd do... More

We did the 2 hour trip and had a great time. A few fun rapids but nothing that was too scary for our 10 year old who was a little nervous to go. Our guide Justin was great and we as a family of four were in our own raft with our own guide which was really nice - not... More

Teen and preteen grandchildren loved the raft trip down the Shoshone River. We did the 4 hour which included a great lunch from Peter's cafe and bakery. It included large sandwich on homemade bread, chips, fruit, homemade brownie and drink. Hayley was our guide down the river, who provided a good narration and history of the town and river. It...

This is a family friendly business. The owners are down to earth and very accommodating. Our guide (Clayton!) was a history buff, comedian, cowboy, and great outdoorsman. We laughed our way down the river, hit the rapids, and got maximum thrills.

We had a great time rafting with our awesome guide Clayton. He was funny and personable, and kept us laughing. We did the 2 hour float, but we only spent a little over an hour on the river, which was a little disappointing. The rapids are very easy for beginners and young children. We also saw several deer on the... More
